Tropicana Evansville Announces Charity Tournament Results



Since 1996, Tropicana Evansville has celebrated the spirit of the holiday season by hosting charity slot and blackjack tournaments in the month of December.  These tournaments are unique in that players’ entry fees are either a new toy valued at $10 or more, or $10 or more in cash.  The generosity of Tropicana Evansville’s players is exhibited through the many toys collected and money donated. This year’s tournaments were held Wednesday, December 4 through Sunday, December 8.


All proceeds benefit two area organizations, Salvation Army’s Toy Town and Santa Clothes Club. Tropicana Evansville has a 17-year history with both organizations and has donated more than 16,000 toys and $34,000 to assist them in their efforts over the years.

Please join Tropicana Evansville’s Community Relations & Service Manager, Angela Patton; Salvation Army Major, David Minks; Salvation Army Director of Development, Sandra Appler; and Vice President of Santa Clothes Club, Wendell Burkhart for the announcement of this year’s tournament community charity contribution results on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 11:30AM (CST) in Tropicana Evansville’s riverfront pavilion.

This year, $16,160 in toy donations, was raised for Salvation Army Toy Town and will be distributed to needy families during the holiday season. Also, $1,750 in cash donations will go to Santa Clothes Club to provide new clothing for needy grade school children whose names are obtained through area school programs.
